Auvik

Auvik is a great tool for discovering the details and eccentricities of your or your customer's networks. It truly is a tool I didn't know I needed and now I can't live without. Immediately after deploying it I was able to proactively identify some network pain points that allowed me to correct multiple network deficiencies and create happier customers without even realizing they were having problems (slow network speeds, congested ports). Onboarding and ongoing support are top notch. They really don't just "throw you to the wolves," though that being said, the complexity of the product does merit taking the onboarding and initial setup seriously and not just going with a "deploy and go" type of scenario, but that's strictly because of the scope and feature set that the product offers.

Cisco DNA Software

It is suited if you want to automate the output. It delivers intelligence and security and switching to the software is easy in terms of transition. However, it requires a tour to start using the software for first-timers as it is not that user friendly. The new innovations in the software are focusing on the interface also.

Because of the dependency on different software, it becomes difficult to use a single one of the CISCO products. One has to purchase the license of more than one product to get the desired output. It is not user-friendly for first-time users and thus a tour is required to make oneself comfortable with the product.

Cisco DNA Software 9.1
Based on 3 answers
While this program has been on the market for a while now and some updates would be a welcomed addition, I have to say that the program as it is now and the support given to our team has been great. It is easy to see that time was taken when building this software to anticipate issues and problems that people would run into. We don't have to reach out to support often, but when we do it's always a good experience.

Alternatives Considered

Auvik

Actually, we went from Auvik to LogicMonitor, Auvik is like playing with Tinker Toys compared to LogicMonitor. We moved from Auvik to LogicMonitor for a bunch of reasons, pricing was among them. Auvik charges extra for Netflow monitoring where LogicMonitor has is included. If you want anything more than basic ping monitoring in Auvik you have to do an SNMP walk on every device that you are monitoring and then write to create custom OID's to monitor for what should be simple out of the box monitoring, such as Cisco Health or Jitter/Latency.

Cisco DNA Software

We compared Cisco DNA Software with some of its competitors and, in the end, we chose Cisco DNA Software because of its features and customer support, also because of Cisco. The other solutions can be great also, but we choose Cisco DNA Software for our purposes.
